Budgeting for a Swim Spa Purchase  

by Pool Builders on 04-21-2014 in Articles

A lot has been said about the benefits of owning a swim spa. It truly is a great investment for your home, for your family, for your personal health goals and even for your social life.

There are numerous uses for it. For models like the Michael Phelps Signature swim spa, you can have an intimate group of friends over to enjoy it with you. You can also take a dip in the healing hydrotherapy waters to help relieve your body of pain and ailments like arthritis. Of course, no one can deny its fitness benefits - whether you are into competitive swimming or just upping your fitness game, this is a great addition to your daily routine.

With all these benefits, there's no doubt that owning one is worth the investment. However, before you start budgeting for your chosen model you should know the maintenance costs. Cleaning your pool means buying chemicals for it. You also need to keep alkalinity and pH in check, so this would need more chemicals to balance this. Some models come equipped with ozone generators and sanitizer systems. While these are a bit more expensive than the standard model, you will save more in the long run as you will need less cleaning chemicals for maintenance.

It is best to know your needs first before buying your pool. The basic price of a swim spa will vary depending on the model, size and features. High-end models like Michael Phelps swim spas have a lot of features that you may love. Check out the different models and their features. Assess if this would be the right pool for your lifestyle.

When budgeting for your purchase, you may also want to consider add-ons. Accessories can make your swim spa experience even more pleasant. There are a number of items you can consider. Some basic ones include the swim spa covers to protect your unit from the elements and to save you heating energy in the long run, metal baskets to hold your bath products, an umbrella to keep you in the shade and a towel rack to hold your towel while you swim. More advanced luxury options include floating remote, exercise equipment such as tethers and bells and more. You may also want to check out entertainment options available for your chosen unit.

As a final word on budgeting for your swim spa purchase, keep within the budget you can afford but don't skimp on the features that you really want. Don't settle for less than what you think you deserve to have that complete, enjoyable experience. Doing your research and talking to your Premium Wholesale dealer can help you determine the right balance for both.
